18th International Conference on the Chemistry and Migration Behaviour of Actinides and Fission Products in the Geosphere

The MIGRATION conferences provide an international forum for the timely exchange of scientific information on chemical processes controlling the migration behaviour of actinides and fission products in natural aquifer systems. Experimental investigations and predictive modelling of these processes are the main topics of the conferences.

The information generated from the MIGRATION conferences is the basis for the mechanistic understanding of the migration behaviour of long-lived radionuclides in the geosphere, which is essential for the long-term performance assessment of nuclear waste disposal. The first MIGRATION conference was held in 1987 in Munich, Germany. It was followed by MIGRATION ‘1989 in Monterey, California, USA; MIGRATION ‘1991 in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain; MIGRATION ‘1993 in Charleston, South Carolina, USA; MIGRATION ‘1995 in Saint-Malo,France; MIGRATION ‘1997 in Sendai, Japan, MIGRATION ‘99 at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, USA, MIGRATION ‘2001 in Bregenz, Austria, MIGRATION ‘2003 in Gyeongju, Korea, MIGRATION ‘2005 in Avignon, France, MIGRATION ‘2007 in Munich, MIGRATION ’2009 in Kennewick,Washington, USA, MIGRATION '2011 in Beijing, China, MIGRATION '2013 in Brighton, UK, MIGRATION '2015 in Santa Fe, USA, MIGRATION '2017 in Barcelona and MIGRATION '2019 in Kyoto, Japan.


Conference MIGRATION 2021 will take place from 12th to 17th september 2021 in Nantes, France.






Infos abstract submission

Deadline for abstract submission and for dates for information on abstract acceptance will be given in september 2020, notification of abstract acceptance and choice oral/poster will be given in about april 2021.


A 700-800 word extended abstract  is expected (2 pages or less including figures, tables and references) is requested in Microsoft Word format. The format is the same as the one used for the most recent MIGRATION conferences in Kyoto and Barcelona.
The intended thematic session (A-E) needs to be given as well as the preferred format (oral or poster), knowing that there will be accepted about 4 times more poster than Oral presentations.
